In 1888, as Quincy transitioned from a Town to a City form of governance, the Department of Public works was established. At that time sleds, horses, ploughs and stone crushers were utilized to perform the responsibilities of the newly organized Public works Department.
In 1890, the population of Quincy was 23,899. Today, we are home to more than 90,000 people. Over the past century our work has become more diversified, computerized, complex and multi-faceted. What has not changed however, is the dedication of public works employees and their steadfast commitment to meet the needs of the public they are honored to serve each and every day.
The Department is responsible for providing a variety of services including water, sewer and drain, engineering, street and sidewalk construction, waste and recycling programs, street sweeping and snow plowing.
You play a vital role in assisting us in providing these essential services, by adhering to trash collection schedules, street sweeping schedules and snow emergency regulations. If we can be of any service to you please feel free to call upon us at 617-376-1959.
